Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 8

  • July 7, 2017

Each week, I’ll share a workout from my personal exercise routine — and then do it in real time so you can follow along. These workouts are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of exercise.

Living Room Workout 8

To be honest, I’ve been avoiding this workout for a while — it’s very simple, but it’s hard. In order to get myself motivated, I told myself I had to do this workout before a meeting I had scheduled, which left me exactly twenty minutes to get it done. This added pressure and deadline often actually helps me take action.

So what workout would make me procrastinate?

For time:

  1. 100 burpees
  2. 100 squats

The cut-off time is 12 minutes — once you hit 12 minutes, stop no matter how many burpees and squats you’ve completed. If you’re a beginner, do 50 of each movement, or 25 of each movement. Watch the video for more ideas on scaling the workout, how to modify the exercises, and to join me in the “fun.”

    This is my third challenge and I have absolutely loved these living room workouts. They have been a life saver. I managed to scale this down to 60 of each to fit it in the time available. It would have been handy to have had the full 12 minute timer on the video as I’ve been doing the workouts with you , but I’ll know to use my own for next time :-) Next effort I will try 70 of each, such a simple workout but an effective one! Thank you!

    25 burpees, 100 squats – really coming up to full hip extension. Not bad for a first time burpeeer, and fist time WLC. Love these workouts!
